The Bush Elementary School PTA recently held its annual Santa Shop in the school auditorium. The PTA purchased items from the $1 store and also had items donated. Every child at Bush School received a “Bush Buck” to buy a gift for a family member. Some students brought in additional dollars to purchase gifts but it was important to the Bush PTA that every child had an opportunity to choose a gift for someone in the Santa Shop.

“We love to hold this event each year because the children get to think of others during the holiday season,” said Bush PTA President Danni Wahl. “It is one of the PTA’s biggest events and we want to ensure that every child has an opportunity to participate in the Santa Shop.”

PTA volunteers shopped with children to help them find the perfect gift and Bush School grandparents wrapped the gifts for each child to take home.
